In three months iOS 10 and all updates have given more to say than all previous versions of iOS together. And not always for good.
In fact, if you stop to think it through, Apple is working hard to repair the errors that are leaving the new versions of iOS 10.
There are already 6 iOS 10 updates the company has released!
For more information, iOS 10.2.1 is already in the process of testing. Why? Because, ladies and gentlemen, iOS 10.2 contains some very unpleasant surprises that not everyone would like to have on your iPhone or iPad ...
First surprise: the battery calibration bug in iOS 10.2
Do you remember the serious bug in iOS battery 10.1.1 I shared in November? Well, Apple has not solved this problem, and getting worse.
This is a problem that makes many models of iPhone and iPad are off to reach 30% (or a percentage slightly lower) due to a bad relationship between software and hardware of the battery.
As reported to us via Forbes China Consumers Association has already launched a serious warning to Apple stating that "the company is failing by not providing the basic needs and rights of consumers for wireless communication."
And, Apple, continue to insist that this bug only affects iPhone battery iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Nothing further from reality, almost all models except the iPhone 7 and iPad Pro are affected.
Second surprise: the telemetry of the iPhone and iPad
Telemetry is the technology in charge of measuring the physical elements (hardware) and sending the information to the system operator (hardware).
Well, it turns out that software tracking telemetry is implemented in iOS 10.2 and was not mentioned in the release description.
Apple confirmed the integration of the telemetry tool with iOS 10.2 on all devices, whether affected by the bug or not.
What is the surprise then? That the telemetry tool has not corrected the problem. Moreover, and here comes the strong, the software sends data related to the battery to Apple's servers. No official warning!
Third surprise: the EarPods and their microphone failures
Another problem in IOS 10.2 iPhone (and iPad) that is most enraging users in the Apple forums is the malfunction of the EarPods microphone during calls.
Ending and restarting the call (with connected EarPods) temporarily solves this terrible error. But even restoring the iPhone / iPad stops happening.
In short, we are happy with the performance of iOS 10.2 on the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPad Air 2 and iPad Pro. But we fellowship with our readers and their continuous reports.
Finally, thanks Apple for offering us the new emoji of the paella destroying along the way the calibration of the battery and EarPods of iPhone and iPad ...
